Storm modeling agency,in addition to having launched Kate Moss' career, has now launched what they call a "new media channel." The kaleidoscopic graphics sure are pretty to look at but the way the hodgepodge of topics are covered--ranging from an orange shade of MAC lipstick to eating disorders to Bikram yoga of all things--is disappointing due to just mere skimming of the subjects or just plain stating the obvious.

However, not all is confusing and bad. Resident lensman David Poole is having a contest for aspiring fashion photographers where he'll post his favorites of submitted shots on the website. Being the shutter-happy person I am, I immediately pounced on this and sent in a sampling of my work.

Alas, my eagerness will probably not pay off. In the rush of possibly winning this contest, therefore working at Storm assisting Mr. Poole, who then refers me to Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and then Inez & Vinoodh will have a falling-out, leaving room for me to properly stick my foot in, resulting in the new photographic stylings of Inez van Lamsweerde & Josephine (yeah!) and whatever other pipe dreams filled my head, I failed to read the fine print which states the the contest is only open to UK residents.

The horror! Whatevs, I'm not bitter...It's not like I won already then got my prize revoked...Besides, I like fluoride in my tap water...and...uh...Yeah, America!
